WHAT WE’RE READING
If you read nothing else, make sure you check out As Kids, They Thought They Were Trans. They No Longer Do by Pamela Paul in the New York Times on February 2. Yes, you read correctly. The NYT has a well-researched, balanced article on trans matters. And check out the comments section. If you are reading this you are concerned about the dangers of trans-ideology and, if you read the comments, you will know you are not alone. Archive addition.
WHAT WE’RE LISTENING TO
Are college campuses infringing on First Amendment rights? One liberal scholar says yes
Harvard psychology professor and author Steven Pinker talks with Here & Now's Scott Tong. Though not specifically about gender, this touches its relevance to any conversation about free speech and addresses how Carole Hooven (author of “T: The Story of Testosterone, the Hormone that Dominates and Divides Us”) was hounded out of Harvard for stating that are two sexes.
IN THE NEWS
The World Health Organization clarifies that it will not make any recommendations for children and adolescents due to limited evidence regarding long-term outcomes of affirmative care for youth.
